Preheat oven to 400 F.
In a small mixing bowl, mix together the softened butter1, Italian seasoning, minced garlic, and salt.
Cut the baguette in half and then slice each half lengthwise (you'll have 4 quarters). Spread the butter evenly on the inside of each quarter of the baguette.
Place the baguette quarters on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake on the middle rack for 6 to 7 minutes or until the edges of the baguette begin to brown.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool to touch, and cut into 1-inch thick slices.
